Maxime Leprince, who is doing his PhD at CEA-Leti’s DTBS and CNRS lab CERMAV, earned great reviews for his Three Minute Thesis. After coming through the regional finals with flying colors, he went to the French national semifinals on April 1, where, unfortunately, his adventure came to an end.
Maxime, who is developing conductive and resorbable inks and hydrogels for biological tissue stimulation and monitoring, very creatively laid out his research like a recipe. He will defend his dissertation in polymer sciences at the end of September and is currently designing intracranial electrodes with one major unique feature: They can be absorbed by the body. Ultimately, the innovative biomedical solutions Maxime is helping develop could be used to treat Parkinson’s disease or epilepsy.
